ATTRITION – The Alibi Admission, of mind Is blinded, and tied By pretty, white lies I picked up all the pieces (left inside…) I am the perfect Alibi I am the perfect Alibi (If not the perfect bride) Sedition, the crime Of holding back tides With blades of silence The sacrificial lamb crawled in (and died…) I am the perfect Alibi I am the perfect Alibi (If not the perfect bride) Baptism, of pride Is falling like fire I’m crowded by violence And burning all the bridges (I have tried) I am the perfect Alibi I am the perfect Alibi (If not the perfect bride)

luminousdash.be review...

ATTRITION
The British dark industrial act Attrition, centered on the driving force behind Martin Bowes, released The Alibi this week . A new single, which came with some lovely remixes by Bellhead, Vaselyne, Steckdose and Follynator. The track sounds artful, with violins, cello, piano and operatic vocals in harmony with the raw moaning, the whispering, the ghostly vocals. A timely chaotic, yet artistic sonic feat of talent!

The Alibi will soon appear on the upcoming new Attrition album The Black Maria.
